The Wild in the Cosmos, Earth, and Creative Human with Drew Dellinger

Drew Dellinger

As humans, we are born from the living web of wildness that is the universe itself. The galaxies are wilderness, as are the planets, the oceans, and the creative depths of the human soul and psyche. Yet much of our modern culture has had the effect of alienating us from the cosmos and our creative selves. Together we will explore the transformational shifts in worldview and practice that are reconnecting us with the Great Community of life. As John Muir wrote, "The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness."
